This deal is back after more than an year (according to hotukdeals and mysupermarket). It's one of those necessities yet stockable items.

I checked the lowest price for this at morrisons and poundland but this price is even lower.

But why buy this when you can get the Tesco or Asda versions for 58p (2 x 29p) with Aldi even cheaper at 27p each? The weight and packaging is the same the only difference is the anti-caking agent. Surely table salt is table salt.

Plus you haven't put where you get it from in the title (like it tells you to)

Salt is no longer classed as an necessity, it's currently seen as bad for you and you can do without it, though that advice may change again next week and back again the week after

don't be silly, we need sodium to survive - we came from the sea, remember?

low sodium in your blood is a serious problem and can be an indicator for epileptic fits/ seizures

you need to look at your food intake & see if you are getting enough sodium from other sources eg packaged foods - if not, you need to find other ways of getting sodium into your body (just not too much)

NHS advice currently is not to add salt to food has been for a number of years, though you are right you should check your diet to be sure, whether you think the advice is silly, don't shoot the messenger it was supposed to be tongue in cheek by its final comments.

that article/ advice is very poor in one very important respect: it assumes that (all) people have too high salt intake & doesn't even mention that salt is a vital part of our diet

I had a routine blood test a few months ago and I got good advice from the GP that my sodium was on the 'too low' side & make sure I was not over-doing it with avoiding salt in my diet or I would create serious problems for myself

yes unfortunately there are a minority like you but this has been the health guidelines for many years as salt is also very bad for you and as the article says most don't need to add it to food. Many people don't even add food as they cook or have it on the table, you need to work out what is best for you but yes you need some salt but the advice still stands, far to many heath issues are caused because of to much salt

Decent advice till you find out the details about processing. Horse meat scandal is only too fresh in my mind. In all probability brAnded manufacturers will try to protect the branded by following better processing of food and ingredients. My taking from horse meat scandal was that the adulteration was far less in branded products than in no branded ones. The brands are charging a premium as you say. I do not know the precise details about salt processing but my preference of buying brands on offer rather than own brands is based on probabilities and my knowledge and experience from adulteration scandals

​And of course so many people died from, or became seriously ill from eating horse meat didn't they!

Who was that magician dude that spent ages in a glass cube full of water in London, anyway the first thing they gave him after the stunt was water with, you guessed it, salt. X)

According to bbc findus was 1 of 17 different products found contaminated. And the brand paid the price. It's no more. This imo will serve as deterrent to brands. Conversely own brands might be keeping same supply chains. But who knows the next recession might see even more adulteration(even fatal -I hope not)from desperate companies. Note how many Aldi products were affected and how many wait rose products. One gets what one pays for bbc.co.uk/new…590
